GOG Might and Magic Sale

I have lost count of how many times I have bought all these games, and I've gone and bought them all again from this sale, just because I can! The luxury of having these old classics digitally stored is worth the price alone, especially as part of the promo! I mean, you are looking at like 12.5 game...

JVC Interview & Ashan Compendium

It does seem scripted and somewhat forced, although I think what JVC feels towards his fans is quite genuine. The older games still have quite a following, and as much as the newer games are pushed by Ubisoft, there will always be those who prefer the originals and continue to support them, and woul...

Rock Wall

There's a unit behind the position of the left wall if you look closely, so I assume it just creates a limited number of walls in front of your units.

Might and Magic Teaser...

One of the biggest features in Heroes IV that I miss was the chance of locations like the Windmill and Watermill to auto-collection, assuming you had clear route to a town. This meant your heroes could be used for other purposes than gathering weekly resources and took out a lot of the micromanageme...

Might and Magic Teaser...

Well, Ubi did state that the Heroes of Might and Magic line would just be called might and Magic from now on, but I'm pretty sure it refers to the HoMM Online Game coming out of beta.

The four artefacts are: The Pendant of Ultimate Mastery, The Unicorn Hornbow, The Ring of Vitality, and The Armor of the Forgotten Hero. In addition to the artifacts themselves, which are all pretty powerful except the Pendant of Ultimate Mastery (without town access, you can't set favoured enemies,...

Beam Me Up, Amelie!

Um, aren't those shots from inside the upgradable artefacts? From orbiting space platform to inside your watch... that's accurate! Next step, sending the army in to fight viruses inside the human body?!

Heroes VI Status?

The only good thing Ubi ever did for the series, in my opinion, was release Heroes Complete in Europe when they first released Heroes V. At least this decision allowed those of us who never the release of Winds of War for Heroes IV before NWC/3DO's demise to catch up, and rejoin the HoMM Community. ...

The Ranger → The Refugees

You might want to check to see if the starting bonuses affect your start up situations for each game. It seems that whenever I choose the 4 Master Hunters, I end up starting with 4 Master Hunters and 20 Hunters, yet whenever I choose the 2 Druid Elders, I start with 20 Master Hunters and 4 Hunters. ...

UbiSoft Online Controversy

If you haven't been updated yet, not only did Assassin's Creed 2 get cracked a day after it's release despite this new DRM, but now the European servers went down, meaning all those people who actually bought the game were unable to play... This is what everybody besides Ubisoft predicted, although ...

UbiSoft Online Controversy

Basically put, this will not work as intended. EA recieved a lot of backlash recently for announcing that they are dropping the servers for games like Madden '09, so what makes gamers think that Ubisoft won't be able to do the same with their titles? More importantly, the lackluster sales of SPORE s...

The Necromancer → The Temptation

I actually found out something worth mentioning with this map - If you conquer the Dungeon Town, you can actually fight the Orange hero that follows you if you garrison the town with Markal when Orange tries to attack. This is a good way to get your revenge!

The Dark Misogynist

I have to post a comment here... Succubi have always been temptresses in fantasy because fantasy was originally sexist. The succubi actually comes from christian mythology (catholicism in particular), which was deeply sexist at the time. Just because "it as always been" does NOT mean it should alway...

The Cultist → The Conquest

Capture the first Sylvan town - the Sylvan spawned creatures slow the entire game down for everybody. They are weak, so with a sufficiently strong army, you should be able to take them down or force them to run. Here's the best thing - the sylvan spawns slow down enemy heroes. The AI goes around the...

I picked this up as soon as I saw it, because even if I can't play Heroes V, having the Winds of War expansion for Heroes IV means I can now play all of those maps denied to my by the poor timing of 3DO's demise. I was a bit sceptical at first, because the packaging leads you to think it only contai...

Mods Wipe Demo Mod Threads

If they didn't want people poking at it, they shouldn't have put it in the demo. They should have known that people would find it. Simply telling them not to just makes them want to do it more! You can be damned sure that somewhere on the internet there is already a message board or site that Fabric...
